The Last Letter Should Never Be A “Z”

It’s hard to believe but this morning, I actually sent my last email for the season. I think I’m going to miss the morning rush to craft an interesting letter filled with humor, support and daily updates – all by 9 am, 6 days a week.

I’ll admit, I had to resort to some unorthodox practices… fill-in-the-blank and form letters, letters from my dog (some translated, some not – as in wuff wuff wuff); crazy dog adventures (the dog thing seems to come up a lot in my letters); new and amusing spin on my daily activities; barely legible 8-point font so that I could include material from my wife, my dog, my son and myself;  new jokes to include (see my last two posts 1 2), and a lot more. Yes, every day has been quite action-packed – before the 9 am deadline. And through it all, I worked hard to make sure that my letters – from first to last – never ended with a zzzzzzzzzzz!

So the last letter has been written for the season.  But summer 2010 awaits! I know you’ll want to be thinking about next year’s letters (which could number as many as 50), so we’ll continue to write through the “winter” months – the seemingly endless stretch between summer camp this year and next.  So when next summer rolls around, you’ll be more ready than ever to write well-crafted, supportive, meaningful, and humorous letters to camp.
